Art for Spooks is on view at the Ulrich Museum of Art at Wichita State University from April 25 until August 23rd 2015, in conjunction with their 20th Faculty Bienial. Stop by if you have a chance!

I’m very happy to announce that it is now possible to download the Art for Spooks app from the Apple App Store! Right now the app is free. Starting February 28th, however, we’re going to start charging 99¢ in order to donate money to the The Upstate NY Coalition to Ground the Drones & End the Wars. Please help support this necessary cause!

After a year of waiting, I’ve finally finished the redesign of the website. It took much longer than expected, mostly due to the pain of upgrading from Drupal 6 to 7. That’s likely uninformative for many of you, but let’s just say that that upgrading software doesn’t always go as easily as planned. In any event, the site is complete, for the time being, and it looks good on mobile devices too. Questions or comments to nknouf {{at}} zeitkunst {{dot} org.

Quite happy that my latest piece of writing, entitled “Communication in the Wake of Snowden”, is now available in the Media-N Journal. The short piece examines my two recent artistic works, sylloge of codes and Art for Spooks (with Claudia Pederson).

Wednesday, 17 September 2014

Two quick notes:

  • This website is a wee bit out of date, and will be updated in the near future.
  • Until then, I wanted to announce two new projects dealing with surveillance: sylloge of codes, which asks us to think about new, more poetic forms of communication in the wake of the Snowden revelations; and Art for Spooks, and produced in collaboration with Claudia Pederson, which is an augmented reality book that explores the cultural imaginary of the NSA and GCHQ. More information is available on the respective websites.

I’m thrilled that I can now make this public: as of Fall 2013, I’ll be an Assistant Professor in the Cinema and Media Studies Program at Wellesley College! I’m extremely excited to be joining such a wonderful group of students and faculty at an amazing college. And I’ll be coming back to the Boston area after a six year “break”, and I look forward to getting back together with old friends and making new ones.

I’m proud to announce the release of a new version of Fluid Nexus.

More information, along with downloads, can be found on the site. Questions, comments, and flames can be sent to fluidnexus {{at}} fluidnexus {{dot}} net.

Just wanted to write a couple of notes. The website design has been updated, as the older version was getting a bit annoying for even my own tastes. I’ve added a couple of recent projects as well. Finally, I’ve transitioned most of my code for works like MAICgregator, Journal of Journal Performance Studies, and Fluid Nexus to a series of repositories on github ; code for my master’s thesis project syngvab is still available from a local SVN repository.
